Can't ping machines on local network!

From the machine with the address 192.168.0.1 try to ping 192.168.0.1 (it's
self) if you cannot do this your network installation is not functioning. If
you can do this then your hub may be hosed.

PS are you using a hub?

Hello,
I've been trying to get my two linux machines to ping each other whole
afternoon but without success. ifconfig shows that eth0 on both of these
machines are activated (one inet addr is 192.168.0.1, the other is
192.168.0.2) but they can't seem to communicate with one another through
the NIC. route -n returns
Destination 192.168.0.0    gateway 0.0.0.0  netmask 255.255.255.0  iface
eth0
which seems ok??
I've also tried to ping one of the linux machines with win98 but same
story. Please help!!!!

No, the two machines are daisy chained. Each machine can ping itself just fine
but not the other.

1. Network problem, can't ping other machines on same network

Hi,

I setup a machine with RH 5.1 in a small LAN. All seems to work fine. My

network card is correctly recognised by the system but I can't ping
other's computers.
So, if I ping my own machine (eg : 192.168.55.1 or 127.0.0.1)
everything's ok but when I try to ping
an other machine (eg :192.168.55.2 or 192.168.55.3...) nothing hapens.
My network setting are

IP : 192.168.55.1
Netmask : 255.255.255.0
SubNet :192.168.55.0
Gateway :  none or default (0.0.0.0)

It is not the first time I setup a Linux machine and I never encountered

this problem before. But of course, I'm not realy a Linux Guru......

Any idea on this ?
Thank you.

P.S. : Sorry for my bad english
